Rolls-Royce has broken the cover off the Black Badge Wraith Black Arrow in the international markets. This will be the last edition of the Wraith model that is powered by a V12 engine, as confirmed by Rolls-Royce. The company's last V12 coupe is built and designed at its Goodwood headquarters. The landmark decision came ahead of the brand's transition to fully-electric mobility. Moreover, Rolls-Royce has also announced that it will limit the deliveries of the Wraith Black Arrow to 12 units globally, to maintain its exclusivity. The new Wraith Black Arrow takes design cues from the Rolls-Royce Thunderbolt, which held the world land speed records in the 1930s. For those unaware, the Wraith series has been on sale for around 10 years.

Commenting on the Wraith Black model's global debut, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, "As the last examples of this landmark motor car get ready to leave Goodwood, we commemorate Wraith’s status as the last series V12 coupé we will ever make. Both Black Badge Wraith Black Arrow and its inspiration, the V12-powered land speed record-holding Thunderbolt of the thirties, represent the culmination of many long years of achievement, and the end of their respective eras. This magnificent final V12 coupé Collection captures both the significance and spirit of Wraith through the marque’s hallmark and peerless Bespoke capabilities. A fitting finale for this transformative motor car."
